Peter Klobucar

Become one of the most desireable places to live

Three questions for city council candidates – Peter Klobucar

1. A) A healthy environment; by this I mean clean air and water.

B) Employment for the youth of the city which means we need to give them the oppurtunity to learn skills  that allow them to raise their families here, not elsewhere.

C) It is not part of my vision to have incinerator facilities built on the old mill site. This would  provide little  employment, but it would cause many health, enviromental and safety issues for the city (have we forgotten that we are part of an earthquake zone).

D) I believe that the city can be developed as a tourist and retirement mecca. Nine acres on the water front could become a Campbell River Fish Market similar to Pike Market in Seattle. Think of the cafes and small shops and artist stalls that could be built on this beatiful piece of land. Part of this market could highlight native arts and culture, as well as farm produce. By working together, we can preserve the beatiful natural resources that are here. Let Campbell River become one of the most desirable places to live and work on Vancouver Island.

 

2. I am not part of the old boys club. I am a newcomer to Campbell River. I see things from a different perspective.

I am not afraid to go in different directions to find solutions. I have 25 years of business, finance and union experience. I am a hard worker and I don’t give up.

 

3. I would propose city council adapt the model of Neighorhood Advisory Councils.The idea is to enhance communication, give Campbell Riverites a chance to more actively participate in the decision-making process of their neighborhood and to help identify issues unique to each neighborhood that needs to be improved.

Each neighborhood councillor would have regularly scheduled meetings to record questions, ideas and opinions of their residents, and to get a better idea of what the municipal service priorities should be for each neighborhood.

The new webpage  for Campbell River councillors  will allow for each neighborhood  councillor to update their residents on hot topic issues and current projects with dialogue box. Each councillor would be assigned one neighborhood, be part of that neighborhood and report the needs of that area at council meetings.
